Winwood vs Gutierrez headlines Thunderdome 42 JUNE 16 in Perth

June 16 will mark the date for 42nd edition of the Australian iconic boxing series, known as Thunderdome. Based out of Perth, Western Australia at Metro City the home of Western Australian boxing.

Dragon Fire Boxing promoter Tony Tolj discussed the upcoming card;

“I’m very excited about this June 16 card. Alex Winwood IBF #12 WBC #13 (2-0) is a generational talent and has been in camp with WBO World Bantamweight Champion Jason Moloney and former WBA World Champion Andrew Moloney ahead of their respective fights. He has amassed over 120 rounds of World Class sparring with World class talent.

Alex has gone to another level and has his hands full with the WBC World #5 Reyneris Guttierez (9-0) of Nicaragua for the WBC Straw weight Championship. I expect this to steal the show. Winwood destroyed the former IBO World Champion Tibo Monabesa inside 4 brutal rounds, Alex is determined to become World Champion in record fashion and do it in style and I believe its gonna be a great ride for everyone involved.

We have 11 fights in total, 2 State title with Jude Grant taking on Jye Chin for the W.A State Middleweight Championship & Richard Lockett taking on Amit Thapa for the Super Bantamweight Championship, both will be crackers.

“The African Dream” Kazeem Soyoye looks to go 6-1 as he takes on undefeated Indonesian boxer “Big Daddy” Deddy Imprax 5-0

Red hot Aussie prospect Jordan Laruccia will look to go 5-0 as he takes on Indonesian “Captain Jack” Dolo.

Also featured will be the annual Alan Pond Cup with Dan Steel challenging Joshua Macpherson for the Cup.

Also featured is the return of Marcus Surmin who takes on 8 fight veteran Bima Prakosa

There will be several Pro debuts also, Dino “The Boss” Ross, Jack Briggs trained by former World Heavyweight Champion Lucas Browne & Katelyn Stack takes on fellow debutant Tara Enoka

One thing which has separated Thunderdome from everywhere else is the competition, its always as best of 50/50 fights as you can get, its sink or swim and June 16 will be no different, 2 men enter 1 man leaves, This is the Thunderdome!.

Tickets available at megatix.com.au and the event will be live on FITE.TV
